What led to you to enroll in Ironhack?
I remember reading about Ironhack on a blog. I was already subscribed to another online programming course run by a company in Valencia. However, the experience wasn’t as great because I felt the teachers were not invested in how much I actually learned, for example
I was also busy with work at the time and had other things going on. So, at the time, it felt like the only way to learn was to go to Madrid, spend time in a classroom with other learners and with teachers who actually work in the tech industry.
I attended the iOS bootcamp because it was one of the few technologies that, at the time, I didn’t have much experience in; I thought it would be really cool to learn it. After deciding that it was the best option for me in terms of the course structure, content, and teaching style, I applied to Ironhack. Thankfully, I was accepted into the course and I was off to Madrid.
Did you have any concerns before starting the course?
“At the time, I wanted to be sure that there were going to be career opportunities for me after the course. After seeing what Ironhack had to offer, I decided it was a good option.
How were you reassured?
I wrote to Ironhack before the course to ask exactly which teachers would be leading the course. When they told me some of the names, I recognized them, and knew that it would be very interesting. When I saw the curriculum, I felt the same way.
I liked the intensity of the learning: two months of it, every day. I like that way of learning; it really suits me. The first week was especially intensive because we needed to learn all of the fundamentals, but I felt like the teacher knew a lot about the materials. This is when I thought “OK, this isn’t going to be easy, but I feel excited about that!”
